Housing and employment monitoring

We monitor housing and employment land availability - the development of new sites and supply of land with planning permission.

The National Planning Policy Framework 2023 states that local planning authorities should identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide eithera minimum of five years’ worth of housing, or a minimum of four years’ worth of housing if the provisions in paragraph 226 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2023 apply, against their local housing need where the strategic policies are more than five years old. The local housing need figure for Charnwood Borough is 1,105 homes per year.

As of April 1, 2023, Charnwood Borough’s housing supply is based upon 1,105 homes per year and its five years housing land supply (including the 5% buffer) is 4.27 years.  The four years housing land supply (excluding the 5% buffer) is now 4.49 years.

The attached documents provide a breakdown of how this is calculated.

For more information about the five year supply position please take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Authority monitoring report

Housing and employment land data and the latest housing trajectory are available in the Authority Monitoring Report (formerly Annual Monitoring Report).

All councils are required to produce an Authority Monitoring Report at least annually. This will be the main way to assess the Local Plan's performance and effects.

The latest Authority Monitoring Report is available to download below:
